Title: Chemical, biological, and radioactive contamination remediation with lasers

Abstract

A laser is used to clean surfaces contaminated with chemical, biological, or radioactive substances. The laser directs a laser beam onto the surfaces and the ejecta is collected by a getter which can be a version of vacuum cleaner. A mobile system includes a laser transporting arm and collection system used in cleanup of metal and concrete surfaces contaminated with chemical, biological, or radioactive substances.
